Welcome to Danbury, North Carolina!
Town Council Meetings--Town Council meetings are scheduled for the fourth Wednesday of every month. A tentative agenda will normally be posted by the Monday prior to the meeting.
The next meeting of the Town Council will be held on Wednesday, June 22, 2016, at 7:00pm, at the Danbury Town Hall.
COUNCIL MEETING -- 5/25/16
1. The Town Council continued their discussion regarding the development of a Pedestrian Master Plan. Ultimate outcomes of this plan, once implemented, include 1) improved connectivity, 2) a means of improving personal health, 3) improved safety for pedestrians and bicyclers, 4) reduced stressors on the natural environment, and 5) community vibrancy. Residents are encouraged to make their comments known to Council members and Town Hall.
2. Council approved a contract for annual auditing of Town finances.
3. A public hearing was held on the proposed budget for next fiscal year. No public comment was received. The budget includes funding to repair a portion of Sheeprock Road. No tax increase was proposed.
The Town Council frequently discusses a concern for pedestrian safety as residents and visitors go about their business on Main Street. While the design of the street is unlikely to change, we can, as motorists, change our behavior. Not only is it dangerous for pedestrians, it has also been common for pets and wildlife to be injured or killed, as well. Everyone is being asked to obey speed limits and to be alert for people and animals crossing the street. Please help us out.
Recently, NCDOT approved speed limit changes for Danbury. The 25mph zone will be expanded and will stretch from the Post Office to Sheeprock Road. The 45mph zone that begins at Seven Island Road and ending at the north town limit will be reduced to 35mph. Signage will be updated soon.
Planning and Zoning Board Meetings--The Planning and Zoning Board meets on an as-needed basis. Meeting dates are advertised in advance.
Recycling in Danbury-- Danbury residents who are currently receiving garbage service are encouraged to take advantage of curbside recycling. This service occurs on an every-other-week basis. The pickup schedule can be found under the "Departments" tab.
